If it werent' for the meds, I'd probably be screaming my head off, beating it against the wall, throwing things and breaking them, crying in a heap in the middle of my floor, and god knows what else.

Stay on the meds, but keep the blowout.

You are doing two things wrong:

1) Allowing these people to treat you like this.
2) Not beating them about the head when they do.

I recommend you start with #2, as it's much more fun, and ease yourself into #1. Don't make dinner. Right this very second, go into that room and finish painting it. Take all night if you have to. Then, make YOURSELF a nice dinner, take it into said painted-bedroom, and eat by yourself. If anyone makes even ONE snide remark about anything you do, go ballistic. Scream, cry, hell even throw something. Return to the activity they said a remark about, making sure to slam a door or two on the way.

Lather, rinse and repeat until the outbursts are no longer needed.
